Jennifer Lopez has dropped an official music video for her track Limitless, from her upcoming film Second Act – and features her 10-year-old daughter. It appears JLo is ready for her daughter Emme Maribel Muniz to showcase her dancing skills – let’s just say she takes after her mama because she slew just like her mother.
The music video, directed by Lopez herself, features Emme as the main protagonist in a song about female empowerment and the camera flashes from a grown-up Lopez struggling against an angry wind, and her daughter, who is wearing the same outfits and struggling against the same wind. Emme comes from an incredibly musical family – her father Marc Anthony is a singer, too
Emme pushes against the uphill clifftop battle against a backdrop of powerful lyrics like, ‘I am a woman who roars,’ ‘Nobody opened my doors’ and ‘I’ll never give up.’ It quickly becomes apparent the 10-year-old cutie is the spitting image of her mum. The 49-year-old wasted no time dancing in a crimson power suit as well as a simple white top and cargo pants. Her daughter mirrors her clothes and her moves in a
In another part of the music video, Emme performs a few of Lopez’s well-known dance moves, absolutely slaying it.

Limitless is the first music video Lopez directed, and its bomb.
“When I tell you, she was so amazing and I was so proud,” she gushed, talking about her daughter on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last week. ‘I was directing my first music video, it was all about her. It was all about her. “And when you see the video, it’s so empowering for, just to see her doing this but, like, for women.
“It talks about being limitless, it talks about having second acts, it’s a beautiful message as well, and great to share with her. Doing that.
“We really bonded,” Lopez added.
The music video, with its ferocious feminine power, was made to help women express themselves: “I am worth something. I have value. I am equal. I am limitless.”
The song suits Second Act, which sees Lopez play an assistant store manager called Maya Vargas who loses a promotion opportunity on her 43rd birthday because she doesn’t have a university education. Things take a turn for the unpredictable when her friend, played by Leah Remini, creates a fake resume that lands her a top executive job at a company in Manhattan.
